All of our insects are hand raised or from sustainable sources such as butterfly farms and aviaries. People in third world countries are cutting down the forest to plant mass crops, which are more profitable than what the natural land provides. By creating a market for insects as artwork and educational specimens we are giving them motivation to maintain the insect populations and their natural habitats. Your purchase helps prevent extinction and support the fight against deforestation and habitat destruction worldwide. Please note that the size of the specimen and frame is shown in centimeters via the ruler in the photo of this listing. If you would like more than the quantity available in the listing please message me to let me know as I most likely have additional stock. The front of the frame is glass, the back is solid black, and it comes with a sawtooth hanger so it can be hung on a wall. There is a layer of cotton inside the frame to hold the specimen in place so it will not shift or break during transit. The specimen is not glued in permanently so the frame can be opened and the specimen removed if you wish to reframe, photograph, or use it for some other purpose. There are pins holding the lid to the frame in place. Take the pins out of the sides and carefully lift the lid off to remove the specimen.
